Which chocolate is best for melting?
You can use any chocolate for melting. From varieties with very high cocoa content to very light variants, everything is possible. Make sure, however, that different types melt at different rates. If you prepare the broken chocolate in the oven, all varieties should be melted and not burn at the same time.
How long does it take for the broken chocolate to harden?
Unfortunately, this is not a last minute gift idea. The broken chocolate should have at least two hours in the refrigerator, but preferably overnight, to really cool down and become solid again.
How long can I store homemade broken chocolate?
Packed airtight and stored in a cool place, you can keep the chocolate for about two weeks. However, some toppings lose their consistency and become soft or too sticky.
Break chocolate packing
For environmental reasons, do not use cellophane paper. Instead, use screw-top jars or boxes of chocolates that accumulate over time, or wrap the broken chocolate in baking paper and tie the package with straw twine.
